12oz bottle sent to me by demcorhip. Thanks man! poured into a snifter.
Pours quite dark with a bit of plum, orange, and brown colouring. Fairly mild carbonation. A vigorous pour gives about 1/8 in of head, and just a swirl of lace. Just a little on the flat side appearance-wise. Aroma is very malty with some buttery caramel notes, vanilla, plum, raisin, and a bit of chocolate with alcohol driving it all straight to the pleasure centre.
Flavour-wise, there's a bit of licorice, caramel, cocoa, plum, raisin, and definite alcohol. Enjoyable herbal character to it as well. It's not as complex as a lot of Scotch Ales I've had, but it's enjoyable and the flavours all stand on their own, not muddy or awkward. Mouthfeel is medium carbonated, and the body is much lighter than I was expecting. It's really quaffable, and at 7% you can have a couple at least.
